LAND VALUES TAXATION [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
LAND VALUES TAXATTflW The Mount Gambler Corporation i brought forward a rather novel proposal I at the meeting of the Municipal Associa tion last week. It was to the effect that municipal bodies should be empowered to rate vacant land equally witn land carrying buildings on either side of it— in other words, that the municipal au thorities should be allowed to create a rental value for vacant lands. Of course the true solution of the difficulty is to rate ou the unimproved values of.the land, as was pointed out by interjection. The motion was lost.

THE POPULARITY OF SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
THE POPULARITY OP SHOWS. I ■ If ever the degree of popularity of an entertainment was put to the test such occurred on Saturday afternoon' in con nection with the show of tbe Royal Agri cultural and Horticultural Society. Though light, the rain was terribly per sistent, and those who had. occasion to go beyond the shelter of the stands be came disagreeably damp. Everybody knew what to expect, and had there not been something specially attractive few would have ventured to' leave their homes. Yet the grounds presented a not uncheerful appearance. The stands were well filled, and even around the arena, getting as much shelter as pos sible from their umbrellas, enthusiasts' braved the elements. The spectators passed an amusing and instructive after noon, for the energy of the officials never flagged and punctuality and animation marked the proceedings. It says a deal for the utility of a show, and a lot more for the high spirit of the people, that in the face of such weather the pro gr...
THE WHEATSTONE TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
THE WHEATSTONE TELEGRAPH. xne mam objection thai in .the past been raised against the Wheatstone sj'stem of telegraphy has been the ne cessity for a large number of clerks at the receiving end of the wire. This has rendered the system costly to work. .Re cently, however, the invention, of the Gell perforator has made it possible largely to reduce the number of receiv ing clerks, as one, by this system, can operate from 70 to 1B0 messages an hour. Instead of transcribing from the receiv ing tape it is sufficient if the tapes of messages for retransmission are pasted on sheets, the officer engaged in this duty working from the Morse characters.
IS THERE A SECONDER? [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
IS THERE A SECONDER? At the meeting of the Municipal As sociation last Wednesday morning Mr. A. W. Styles (Mayor of Thebarton) brought forward a motion to the effect thai Parliament be petitioned to abolish plural voting in connection with certain municipal elections. The Mayor of Ade laide (Mr. L. Cohen) was in the chair, and on the matter coming on he, in a somewhat facetious manner, asked if there was any gentleman present pre pared to second the motion.. Alderman Klauer (Thebarton) stated that he was there for that purpose. After a general debate on the subject the motion was lost, but only by W Totes to 12, so the point of Mr. Cohen's joke was to a great extent lost.
ANAEMIA. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
, ANAEMIA. It is not. an unusual thing to find that persons who have been getting run down and debilitated put off seeking medical advice on the plea that they are "only anaemic," evidently thinking that euch a condition is not of very great importance and will naturally right itself. Now, con sidering that anaemia is poorness blood, and that the whole system is en tirely dependent on the blood for its nu trition, it ■ should be evident that to "be anaemic is to be in a really serious state of health—not, of course, serious from the point of -view of immediate danger to life, but because impoverishment of the blood means lowering of the vitality and lowered powers of resistance to dis ease. Simple anaemia is, as a rule, one of the most satisfactory conditions of ill health the doctor has to deal with, as under proper treatment the blood quickly returns to its normal condition of strength. It is only when, after -several weeks' medical treatment; the anaemia does not disappear that a...
THOSE TERRIBLE TEAMWAY CARS. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
THOSE TERRIBLE TEAMWAY CAES. The strain thrown upon the electric tramwaj' system by the burst of wet weather has removed all doubt in the minds of the citizens of Adelaide in re aTd to the quality of the car service ren ered them. At the Hackney Depot the officials have elbow room and to spare. A splendid building has been erected for their convenience, their rooms are more imposing and comfortable than those of Cabinet Ministers. While they move along the even path of their, official duty the poor citizen has to squeeze himself into a space between two seats that was never meant to hold him, and, if in a hurry and the car is full, he is compelled o maintain a precarious foothold on the edge of the'platforms and even on the pteps. He is continually apologising to fellow passengers for treading upon their toes or digging them unexpectedly, but none the less forcibly in the ribs when the driver stops too suddenly. But for the inconvenience, a ride home in the evening with the business...
ELECTORAL WORK UNDER DIFFICULTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
ELECTORAL WORK TJXDEE DIFFICULTIES. It is to be hoped that the Common wealth elections in this fctate will be carried out with more attention to de tail than was evidenced when the rolls were being prepared. The Common wealth Electoral Office for South Austra lia is situated in the Supreme Court Building, and applicants lor enrolment entered a small room off one of the corridors. This apartment was almost filled with bundles and boxes, and even without visitors the three or four clerks engaged there must have found the space inadequate. A narrow passage was left between the boxes and bundles up the centre of the room, and when two or three applicants arrived there was a de gree of twisting and dodging calculated i to give a traveller from over the sea a strange idea of the methods of the Com monwealth Government. It is not sug gested that the clerks did not do -their duty to the utmost of their ability, but under such circumstances it would not be surprising if would-be electors fou...
HALLEY'S COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 7 March 1910
HAT.LEY'S COMET. A privileged few have seen at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, a tiny, fluffy spot on a photographic plate which re presents the first photograph ever taken of one of the most fascinating bodies in the solar system (says H. O'Xeill, as introduction to an articlc in the "Wind jsor Magazine.)" It- is a photograph of HaUey's Comet which was taken on Sep Itember 9, 1909. For two years photo graphic plates have been exposed in huge telescopes all over the world in the hope of finding this dazzling comet after its journey of 75 years past the most distant planet Xeptune. Inter alia, the writer [states that when Halley'6 Comet last ap peared the spectroscope had not been in vented. The comct Morehouse, jvhich was discovered in 1908, was found to have traces of the poisonous cyanogen gas in its filmy tail. It has been suggested that Halley's Comet may also contain traces of the deadly gas,, but the thought need occasion no alarm. Even if the comet's tail brushed the earth—...
